Reminiscent of Heinlein's STARSHIP TROOPERS. A darn good military sci-fi read!

From back cover:
The colony worlds Adirondack and Silvern fell to the Troft forces almost without a struggle. Outnumbered and on the defensive, Earth made a desperate decision. It would attack the aliens not from space, but on the ground---with forces the Trofts did not even suspect.
Thus were created the Cobras, a guerilla force whose weapons were surgically implanted, invisible to the unsuspecting eye, yet undeniably deadly.
But power brings temptation . . . and not all the Cobras could be trusted to fight for Earth alone. Jonny Moreau would learn the uses--and abuses--of his special abilities, and what it truly meant to be a COBRA!
